Cancer patients come to Nebraska from all over the world to receive expert cancer care from physicians at Nebraska Medicine. Now, that same expertise is available Nebraska Medicine—Bellevue. A full-service outpatient hematology/oncology clinic and infusion center is now offered to patients at Bellevue.
"Our patients' lives are so busy with visits to the doctor, lab tests and imaging studies," said Alissa Marr, MD, medical director of the cancer center at Nebraska Medicine—Bellevue. "It's nice that we can merge all that into one location so they don't have to spend their time moving from one facility to the next."
Patients will have access to a team of experienced cancer specialists including medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, nurse practitioners, case manager, nutritionists and social service workers to provide patients a full-service, multi-disciplinary approach to their care. Radiology services and laboratory support are also available at Bellevue.
"We felt a strong need to provide these services closer to home and in their own community," said Theresa Franco, executive director of the Cancer Care Service Line at Nebraska Medicine. "Easy access and convenience are critical issues for cancer patients who may need multiple treatments and careful monitoring of their condition. These services will make for more convenient care and an easier commute."
"Through our partnership with The Nebraska Medical Center, our patients will get many of the benefits of receiving care from the premiere cancer program in the region whenever possible, but in their own neighborhood," said Julie Vose, MD, chief of Oncology/Hematology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC). "Higher risk patients or those using experimental treatments will be seen by our specialists at The Nebraska Medical Center campus."
Nebraska Medicine has a history of providing state-of-the-art cancer services and is recognized nationally and internationally for its cancer care and cutting-edge cancer treatments.
Bellevue patients will also have the opportunity to participate in the same clinical trials that are available at Nebraska Medicine—Nebraska Medical Center campus, giving patient access to the newest and most advanced cancer treatments available.
Preventive screenings and early detection services also will be available to Nebraska Medicine—Bellevue patients along with educational programs and a cancer survivorship program. The survivorship program is designed to help patients deal with the physical and emotional challenges of fighting cancers as well as the long-term side effects and learning how to return to a normal life again.
"This collaboration with the primary care doctors of Nebraska Medicine—Bellevue will continue to develop our cancer program offerings based on their recommendations and the needs of patients in the community," Franco said.
